I made these SpongeBob Squarepants Cookies for my son’s class as part of his invites for his SpongeBob Birthday Party. They were such a hit among the kids and the parents wished they got some too…
I know this blog is all about easy, and this is pretty easy to make but I must admit it is time consuming, so do start early and also remember the fondant/sugar paste parts can be made in advance and stored in a airtight container till later.
2 1/2 cups Self Raising Flour
1 cup Butter, softened
1 1/2 cups White Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
Preheat oven to (190 degrees C (375 degrees F) C
Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients.
You can use immediately!
Roll out the dough on a well floured survice till about 3mm thick. Use cookie cutter to cut out rectangular shapes.
Place on prepared baking tray and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden. Cool on wire rack.
DECORATING SPONGEBOB COOKIES
You will need premade fondant in Yellow, White, Red and Blue. I flavoured the Yellow fondant with banana flavouring. You can also use sugar paste for this – it will dry harder.
A black edible marker
Roll out your yellow fondant about 2mm thick, cut into rectangles with knife or cookie cutter – preferably the cookie cutter that you used for your cookies.
Using a tool with round tip, make some “sponge holes” in his body.
Take some yellow fondant and form a nose by rolling a small ball into a small “log”
Roll out the red fondant 1mm thick and cut out circles. Then cut the circles in half and attach to SpongeBob’ body with edible glue. This will be the mouth.
Cut out little ties from the red fondant.
Roll out white fondant till 1mm thick and cut out small strips and then cut it into small squares for his buck teeth. Stick teeth on mouth with edible glue.
Cut out small circles from white fondant and attach to SpongeBob’s face with edible glue.
Take a small piece of blue fondant and roll into a little ball, flatten slightly. Stick onto the white of SpongeBob’s eye with edible glue.
Cut small rectangles out of the white fondant attach onto SpongBob’s body for a shirt. Stick the red tie onto the white shirt with edible glue.
Use black edible marker to draw eye lashes and a dot on the blue fondant for his pupil.
Let dry overnight and enjoy!
